This Versatile Outfit Staple Is A Must-Have In Your Wardrobe

It’s a wardrobe must-have, like a flattering pair of jeans or an LBD: the pencil skirt, a dress-up or dress-down piece that’s completely timeless. In addition to modern styles, Cushnie also masters the classics, and a hip-hugging skirt is one of them.

If you don’t already have a perfect-fitting pencil skirt (or a slim-bottomed dress), it’s time to add one to your closet. And if you do, well … it may be time to grab another one!

Wear your pencil skirt to the office, for interviews or meetings, to parties, get-togethers, luncheons, on vacation, running errands -- you name it! Any time you need something a bit dressier than jeans, a pencil skirt fits the bill, plus its longer length means that you can sport it year-round (throw on some tights when it gets really chilly). Accessorize with pumps, booties, sandals, or flats, top with a blazer or a cropped  jacket, and you’ll be good to go, no matter the season.

Get a well-designed pencil skirt or dress, and you’ll find yourself reaching for it over and over again. And if it’s made by a quality brand like Cushnie, you can keep it for years to come, since it will never go out of style.

This button-detail skirt is as classic as it gets, complete with a saucy slit that adds some va-va-voom! Thanks to its thigh-high feature, the Dahlia Pencil Skirt is especially flattering on petite women, since it gives the illusion of elongated legs (@classyverse’s Francesca is only 5’2”!).

Slim from waist to ankle, the Karina Pencil Dress is a stunning piece to wear for any special occasion, from holiday parties to formal events. In addition to showing off curves, the intricate neckline makes this dress especially alluring.

A slightly more casual take on the pencil dress, this knit Alsia Dress can take you from day to night with ease. True to form, Cushnie designs it with a unique cutout detail that’s fastened together with a row of metal hoops.

Try the timeless silhouette of a pencil skirt with a contemporary twist: the Saar Pencil Skirt in poppy red with an electric blue zipper that runs top to bottom, to be exact. Wear it with a crop top, a bodysuit, or a blouse, and you’re sure to turn heads wherever you go.

Diagonal sheer panels that run across the thighs make the fitted Eliza Pencil Skirt look ultra-elegant. Sophisticated enough for a black tie event, this skirt can also be styled for work, dinner, or New Years Eve, among other occasions.

The Dex Pencil Skirt is incredibly chic but also makes a statement! Its fit is stunningly simple, but the feathers add an unexpected detail that’ll capture glances wherever you go. Wear it with a bright-colored blouse, or stick with black from head to toe for a look that’s simple but glam.

If you’re a gal with a penchant for flair, the Romina Pencil Skirt has the curve-enhancing shape we know and love along with a feminine cascade of romantic ruffles. Check out this little number is modeled by @laura_lily, who created a sophisticated ensemble by pairing it with (believe it or not!) a sheer activewear top and some pops of red!
